Memory Box Snowglobe Wishes ‘Santa’ Wobble Card for CAS Christmas Challenge…

Hi everyone!  It’s been a crazy week here…our area stamp club had it’s annual Christmas party yesterday and I was the head elf!  I had lots of fun preparing and I’ll have a few things to share from it soon!  😀

Today I’m posting for the CAS Christmas challenge again as a guest for the month of November! So fun!  I love CAS cards and even more so at Christmas!  I have this cutie Santa on a wobble to share with you… a super short/seconds video to show you how it moves.


To see the video larger, go HERE 

I love doing Copic Scribble coloring on these whimsical small-ish images.  I added two sentiments in the set because well, Santa jiggles when he says “ho ho ho merry Christmas”  so he needed to wobble!

A little Stampendous thick embossing powder for the snow…a scribble or two of white gel pen on his beard and suit.

Everything is on mounting tape but the piece behind Santa is a little thicker.

If you would like this stamp set and die set… email Cindy at Starlitstudio.net and she will get it ordered for you!

I’m going to link up to some other challenges too…

Mama Elephant, poppystamps and Guesting for the CAS Christmas Challenge…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I’m so excited to post today with the CAS Christmas Challenge!  I won their challenge a few weeks ago with a CAS wreath card and now I get the honor to play along with them as a guest! You are invited to play a long too!

The theme for this month is….

I chose to use one of the super cute Mama Elephant Santa Agenda stamps…the Santa that’s ready to go down the chimney!

He’s so cute!  I stamped him on Copic X-Press It coloring cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, in the MISTI and colored him with Copic Sketch Markers.

I used some white gel pen after I finished coloring to highlight his fur and beard.  TIP: Don’t color with Copics after you use the gel pen because it ruins the nib on your marker!

I die cut the poppystamps Snowy Merry Christmas die three times in white, glued them together, keeping all the pieces on two of the cuts. Then I die cut one time in red.  I stamped a brick stamp with black ink on the red cut, then pieced the red into the top white cut…going for a chimney look!

Everything I used is linked below.

I wanted to put snow or sparkle on the tops of the chimney but I was afraid I would ruin it! So I kept it CAS. haha

I added the small snow flake from the poppystamps Shiny Snowflake die and a red glitter dome.

On the inside I stamped, ’tis the season to be jolly from a Penny Black stamp set.

I sure have been having fun with my stamps and dies!  ‘Tis the season and my favorite time of year to make cards!  I hope you’re inspired to get in the Spirit of Christmas and make cards!  Thank you so much Loll for asking me and to the team for sharing their CAS creativity!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you want to see a fun video of a card I made that I didn’t get posted on my blog yet…click HERE…you can see it even if you don’t have an Instagram account.  I hope to make another and post instructions here soon. It’s super, super cute and FUN!  I am biased about it! HOHOHO

ttul!  (Remember to comment on my Tuesday giveaway post here on the blog, winner announced next week!)

poppystamps Seed Outline Snowflake and Seed Snowflake Collage Cards…

Hi everyone! Bringing some faux snow your way today! White bits everywhere these days! lol

My first card I used both the NEW poppystamps Seed Snowflake dies…the outline is the big white flake…I cut and glued three together…

Timesaver Tip: I stacked the 3 together first, without glue, and poked the pieces out, all three at the same time!

Then I die cut the Seed Snowflake Collage die in a 110# Solar White card front panel and inked it with Tumbled Glass Oxide in the center and Evergreen Bough Oxide everywhere else.  I love this combo!

I took this picture before assembling because I thought it’d help you see what I inked and where.

The card base is Tumbled Glass Oxide.

Here’s the card assembled…

ok – I finished it and thought, I should spray this with some Frost spray… I like the look of it when the card is in my hand but it sure was hard to get a picture of it!  I spent 3 hours yesterday taking and retaking.  Now that’s dedication or just stupid. sigh.  So moral of the story, don’t spray it if you want to take pictures of it Pam. haha

I love this gorgeous snowflake die.  I saw it made up as an ornament.  I want to do that.

So I had so much fun inking I decided to make a CAS, clean and simple card.  Nothing is clean and simple when I do it! hahahahaha

I mean, I can’t even decide what sentiment to use and what color to stamp the sentiment without deliberating for 30 minutes! lol  I get today’s whiny baby award! lol

‘nother lesson…don’t spatter right after you’ve done water drops.  The spatters hit the water drops and well, they spread! Oh well, I used it anyway…see…nothing’s simple! Go ahead and laugh cuz I am!

I do love Tumbled Glass Oxide…this is on 110# Solar White too.  The sentiment from the NEW poppystamps Art Deco Celebrate Christmas stamp set stamped in the same Tumbled Glass Oxide ink.  I wasn’t sure how it would stamp a sentiment but I am really happy with it.  I did use the MISTI to stamp it.

I colored the snowflake with a Spectrum Noir Clear glitter pen.  I really like how that made it sparkle!  I tried to capture it…

Linking my card to some challenges…

The Merry Christmas Challenge – anything goes

Cards in Envy – Favorite Holiday Card Challenge

Watercooler Wednesday – All About Holidays Challenge

ABC Christmas Challenge – V for very quick

 

My last card was inspired by the word ‘collage’ in the title of the Seed Snowflake Collage die…

I just got the NEW Memory Box That’s Acute stamp and die sets so I had to play!  First I had to try it in a wreath building way and yes the stamp set works for that!

I soon decided I needed trees to go with the Seed Snowflake Collage panel that I’d inked up with Lucky Clover Oxide and Cracked Pistachio Oxide on 110# Solar White.

I already had the ‘peace’ word stamped and layered/glued up, since I didn’t use it on the first card, I loved it here!  It’s from the NEW Memory Box Bold Christmas Greetings stamp and die sets.  I love that it has dies to match!  Oh so pretty! I love all the scripty words!

Then I decided it needed glitter paper behind and a glitter frame…use the piece from cutting the frame behind the collage.

After stamping and layering the trees where I wanted them…it just needed a bit of something!  YES!  a small snowflake hit the spot.

This is my week so far! It’s been really nice and I haven’t even been out to enjoy it…maybe today…I hear some stuff calling my name though! I need a stamp store to walk to! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by today…I’ll post links below.  I appreciate it so much when you click through my links.  Some are affiliate but never any added cost to you but a small income for me and accountability that I’m here making, showing off cool stuff!  I thank you for your support.  If I knew who you were, I would send thank you cards!

poppystamps Mod Poinsettias CAS Card…

Happy Saturday everyone!  I’m having a lazy day here…but I did manage to get stuff put away after our stamp club card party yesterday!  yay!  Ready to start again!  In the meantime I still have cards to share…so I’ll post some pictures of this one today!

I always love poinsettias but paired with beautiful sentiment stamps and black…swoon!

This is poppystamps NEW Mod Poinsettias and Memory Box NEW Bold Christmas Greetings stamp set…when I saw it, well, I knew I had to have it!

All this white space!  oh my!  So simply but it does pack a punch doesn’t it! lol

I colored the poinsettias with Copic Sketch Markers – R20, 43 and a teeny bit of 46.  I do love R46… I want them to add more in the R40’s!

Oh, I better not forget…the holly branch is from the NEW Memory Box Elegant Holly Double Frame!  I’m going to end up using the two branches from this set more than the frames!  Remember the wreath I made with the curvy one several posts back?  So much potential in that die!

Die cut in white and colored again… I think the greens are G94 with a little bit of G99 in the veins.

One more picture just because I have it and that doily! haha

It was fun to use one of the smaller Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles set too!  It perfectly frames the floral piece.

Guesting for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge Blog…

Hi cardmakers and friends! I’m so honored to be the guest card designer at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Challenge blog today! I love making cards this time of year and I love receiving them too!  I went with a clean and simple take to the challenge sketch!  So fun!

I was so tickled to find this die in my stash that so resembled all the circles!  So I die cut it 3 times, glued them together so it’d have a frosty, dimensional feel.  Cuz brrrrr  it’s gonna be cold outside! haha  It’s every other day in Iowa…in fact we can have all four seasons in one day!  haha  No snow yet though!

Shoot me now cuz, grrr, this poppystamps Scribble Snowflake Circle die is a discontinued one.  I will link up some other dies below that I think would work nicely for this type of card too!  I just kept finding more while looking HERE!  More ideas than I can handle! lol

 

I love the punch of the Robin’s Egg and Candy Necklace Bazzill colors with this NEW Celebrate Jotted Script die from Memory Box.  Links below.  The pattern paper is a woodgrain that’s available too! yay!

I hope you’ll click over to the challenge blog, make a Christmas card and link it up for this challenge!  It’s so fun to look through the stash to see what you can come up with for the sketch!  I want to see what you make!

Two cards with the NEW Memory Box Pine Tree Deer Collage…

Hi cardmakers and friends!  I got to playing around with dies again mid afternoon yesterday… made one card and another this morning!  You know how I love red, white and brown..throw in plaid and I’m a happy cardmaker! lol

I used several dies for these two cards…the only thing different on this first one is the stitched oval I embossed around the Pine Tree Deer Collage.

I die cut the Pine Branch Oval Frame from a 2016 release and glued it to the back of the Pine Tree Deer Collage that’s die cut in a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card front panel.

I taped a 4 x 5 ¼ inch plaid piece of pattern paper to an A2 card base. Then I mounted the top panel to the card base with foam mounting tape.  That way it creates a little depth but still mails for one stamp.  I will use an A6 size envelope to mail these though.

I die cut the NEW Snowberry Sprigs in white, the NEW Holly Flourish in white and inked it with Distress inks Forest Moss and Mowed Lawn.  I had to trim them to fit under the Stitched Oval banner piece. I used a marker to color the berries red, then went over them with a little green so they weren’t stark red.

The beautiful snowflake is from the NEW Pinpoint Snowflake Circle Frame die cut in white.  The NEW Peace Cheshire Script die is cut three times from Kraft and glued together, then inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  I inked the card edges and the deer with Gathered Twigs ink also.

 

I don’t have as many pictures for the Teal version… hehe… good thing! lol

Here I used Memory Box Mocha notecards for the card panel and Pumice Stone Distress ink for edging the panels, parts and word.

Fun in non traditional Christmas colors!

So happy to have two more cards for the masculine Christmas card stash!  I hope you’re inspired to try combining your dies! Thanks so much for stopping by!

P.S.  sorry about the email notification having ads this week.  Appears to be something wordpress just added. yuk.  They are gonna finally make me pay up or can we ignore?  I get so tired of ads.
